Can someone help me determine if my Aunt's Yamaha RXV365 is Broken?

Hi,


Previously from what I see the COMCAST / TV and Blu Ray were hooked up HDMI. The Yamaha receiver has 4 speakers and sub hooked up.

When plugged in via hdmi, I'm unable to get front or rear speakers or sub to work, only the tv speakers are carrying sound, despite being run through the receiver. When I plug the Blu Ray player in with RCA I'm suddenly able to get power to the external 4 speakers. Could the HDMI / surround capabilities be blown out somehow? I know the system suddenly developed a problem, I dunno if it was human induced or something just failed.

Can someone help me determine whats going on here so I can feel less stupid?

Thanks!

Hdmi board failure is common industry wide. Expensive fix for any model.
The three hundred series is low end and not worth fixing. Try every input port
and several cables to be sure.

Ok thank you I will try that. So far it seems no hdmi inputs work for powering the extra speakers, i also find it weird that the tv still gets the hdmi sound being hooked up to cable box but external speakers nothing, trying dvd / cbl etc.

I was surprised the receiver is working via the rca, but then I realized they could be completely separate from each other and that may not be so uncommon. Would this be the hdmi board failure symptom? I appreciate being to come here and get a response so quickly. I also do not feel like I have failed my family now so thank you and happy holidays!
